Justin Bieber's ex is in a movie this weekend.  That's right, Selena Gomez, acting!  That might be enough to convince you that it's a slow one at theaters. 

Still, Hap Erstein with gives us his take on the latest films.

"Getaway" - Ethan Hawke is ordered by someone over the phone to drive Selena Gomez' car very fast in order to save his wife's life from a bad guy played by Jon Voight. Hap says the title of this film should serve as advice...Get Away from this movie!

"The Grandmaster" - An action feature inspired by the life and times of the legendary Kung Fu master, Ip Man.  Hap says it is visually stimulating, but that's about it 

"One Direction: This is Us" - A documentary starring the teen sensation One Direction. Interesting note: Morgan Spurlock of "Supersize Me" fame directed this one.

"Austenland" - Keri Russell stars in a movie that may appeal more to women than men. It's about a woman who obsesses over the works of author Jane Austen and visits a fantasy resort where romance is key. It's a romantic-comedy.

Hap's Art House Pick of the Week

"The Artist and the Model" - A film from Spain about an aging sculptor from France who takes in a female political refugee from Spain. She becomes his muse.
